"HOW does it happen that you've never married?" If you've ever been guilty of asking that question of an unmarried woman, you'd better read on. For here is what a successful New York career woman has to say about the matter. "By observation and from what my women friends who are tell me, one of the greatest hazards of being single is laving busy- fa o d i e s ask rep e a t e d 1 y why vou're not married. Women R"" 1 MI" e " are particularly bad about this, but men aren't good about it, either. "This seems to me to be an extremely personal question, on a level with asking someone his age or how much he has In the bank. But it's worse, somehow. "One friend, at the doddering and advanced age of 21, tells me becomes, "How does it happen tha a good-looking girl like you isn' married?" Even fancied up, the question is still a nosey one, and not one tha 1 any woman is likely to welcome from anybody. , But the women have to smile and pretend not to mind the queston. If they answered it as they have 2 perfect right to do: "How does it happen that you were able to find someone to marry you?" they'd be put down as bitter old maids. So they pass the question off with a wisecrack at their own expense and hide their resentment at such a personal question. They won't tell you, but you ought to know this anyway: Asking a woman why she has never married is a nosey impertinent question even when the question is prettied up to sound like a left- handed compliment. Is asked 'constantly, Other women, older women who are highly successful In business, are plagued by It. too. It's a situation that seems to exist in all communities and at all social and age levels," She's right, of course. Nobody has a right to ask a single woman why she has never married. Not even the men who think they make the question sound like a compliment by prettying It up so that it Brightly-patterned corduroys nvft been cut into suits, separates and phiywear (or small boys this fall.
